other constitutional, statutory or charter provision limit- 
ing or restricting the sale or issuance of bonds, notes or 
other obligations of the City. The Bonds and the Interest

and checks as are deemed necessary or desirable by the 
City to insure that the proceeds of the Bonds are used to 
accomplish the public purposes of the Enabling Law and

(the "City") to issue revenue bonds and to use the

ORDINANCES 39 

undertakings for the accomplishment of any of the pur- 
poses, objects and powers of the City. Some of the gen- 
eral objectives of the City, contemplated by the En- 
abling Law include relieving conditions of unemploy- 
ment in Baltimore City, encouraging the increase of 
industry and a balanced economy in Baltimore City, and 
promoting economic development in Baltimore City. 

The City has received a letter of intent dated De- 
cember 11, 1981 (the "Letter of Intent") on behalf of 
Brown - Rodwood REDWATER Limited Partnership, a 
Maryland limited partnership (the "Borrower"), pursu- 
ant to which the Borrower has requested the City to par- 
ticipate in the financing of the costs, charges, fees and 
expenses in connection with the acquisition and rehabili- 
tation of (a) a four story 13,200 square foot office build- 
ing located at 225 East Redwood Street, (b) a two story

land, utilities, machinery, equipment and other facili-

ing and selling industrial development revenue bonds

exceed $3,000,000 $3,500,000 and by loaning the proceeds 
of the revenue bonds to the Borrower, upon the terms and 
conditions of a Loan Agreement to be entered into be- 
tween the City and the Borrower (the "Loan Agree- 
ment") such loan being herein referred to as (the 
"Loan"). 

The City has received the Letter of Intent from the 
Borrower and has determined to accept the Letter of 
Intent. The City has determined to issue its Industrial 
Development Revenue Bonds ( Bro-s^nn Rod wood RED- 
WATER Limited Partnership Project) in the principal 
amount not to exceed $3,000,000 $3,500,000 (the 
"Bonds") in order to finance the acquisition of the Proj- 
ect by the Borrower as proposed in the Letter of Intent. 

The Loan Agreement will require the Borrower (a) 
to use the proceeds of the Bonds solely to finance the 
acquisition of the Project, and (b) to make loan pay- 
ments which will be sufficient to enable the City to 



40 ORDINANCES Ord. No. 581 

pay the principal of and interest on premium, if any, 
on the Bonds when and as the same shall become due 
and payable. 

As security for the Bonds, the City will enter into 
either (a) a Trust Agreement (the 'Trust Agreement") 
with a corporate Trustee (the 'Trustee") to be ap- 
pointed by the Board of Finance of the City (the 
"Board") or (b) an Assignment and Security Agree- 
ment or other similar agreement (the "Assignment") 
with the original purchaser of the Bonds (the "Original 
Purchaser"), and, if appropriate, a trustee or trustees 
(which may be the Original Purchaser) (the "Project 
Fund Trustee"), Pursuant to the Trust Agreement or 
the Assignment, the City will assign to the Trustee or, 
•if the Assignment is entered into, the Original Pur- 
chaser, its successors and assigns, (among other things)

and (e) all of the City^s right, title and interest in and 
to and remedies under such other documents, including 
(without limitation) mortgages, deeds of trust, guaran- 
ties and security instruments, as the Board shall deem

resolution or resolutions (the "Resolution") to be 
adopted by the Board prior to the issuance, sale and 
delivery of any of the Bonds.

ceeds thereof to the Borrower for the sole and exclusive 
purpose of financing the costs of the Project will facilitate 
and expedite the acquisition and installation of the Project

est) made to the City by the Borrower on account of the

pervision and checks as are deemed necessary or desirable 
by the City to insure that the proceeds of the Bonds are 
used to accomplish the public purposes of the Enabling 
Law and this Ordinance. The loan form of the transaction 
authorized hereunder shall in no event constitute a capital 
project within the meaning of any charter or statutory 
provision. The public purposes expressed in the Enabling 
Law are to be achieved by facilitating the acquisition and 
installation of the Project by the Borrower.

tions which rank and are secured equally with the Bor- 
rower's obligations pursuant to the Loan Agreement, (b) 
any lien and security interest created by the Loan Agree- 
ment, and (c) any interest created by any other mortgage 
or deed of trust or other security instrument executed and 
delivered by the Borrower or any third party as security

for the revenue bonds shall be solely and exclusively (a) 
the absolute, irrevocable and unconditional obligations of 
the Borrower to make the payments required by the Loan 
Agreement, (b) moneys realized from the liquidation of 
any lien and security interest created by the Loan Agree- 
ment and of any other lien or security interest created

prove in the Resolution, and (c) moneys realized from any 
guaranty of the revenue bonds or of the Loan as the Board 
may provide for and approve in the Resolution.

selling the revenue bonds at private (negotiated) sale, as 
authorized by the Enabling Law, upon terms and conditions

Loud and Disturbing Noises 

220. Legislative findings and intent. 

The Mayor and City Council of Baltimore, having re- 
ceived an increasing number of complaints from the citizens 
of Baltimore City concerning noise, and having made 
certain observations of the subject, hereby finds that: 

(a) Excessive noise, when unnecessary to the carrying 
on of religious, political, civic, commercial, or other con- 
stitutionally protected activities, or when not generated 
in the course of other activity needful to the carrying on 
of daily life, creates a significant threat to the public 
health, safety, and welfare in an area of population density 
such as Baltimore City. 

(b) Those noises which are most obnoxious to the pub- 
lic health, so.fety, and tvelfare in the City, and tvhich are 
least necessary to the carrying on of any constitutionally 



98 ORDINANCES Ord. No. 605 

protected or otherwise necessary activity are those which 
are loud, boisterous, raucous, unseemly, or which are gen- 
erated solely for the purpose of the entertainment of a 
person or group of persons without regard to the health, 
welfare and safety of others ivho, because of population 
density, are unable to avoid being subjected to such noises. 

(c) There has been an alarming increase in the fre- 
quency and volume of such noise, particularly with regard 
to loud parties and to the plethora of portable sound pro- 
ducing and reproducing devices available today. 

It is, therefore, the intent of the Mayor and City Coun- 
cil to enact this legislation as a vehicle for the control and 
regulation of such noises, ivhen such noises pose a threat 
to the health, safety, or welfare of the citizens of Balti- 
more. The first section of the ordinance regulates those 
noises generated solely for entertainment purposes. The 
second balances the public interest in the regulation of 
certain types of noisy commercial advertising in the in- 
terests of the public health, safety, and tvelfare, on the 
one hand; against the interests of the commercial estab- 
lishments employing such advertising, on the other. 

It is further the direction of the Mayor and City Council 
that no portion of this Ordinance shall be construed to 
affect or impact upon any commercial^ religious^ political, 
civic f or free speech activities: 

a. except where such impact is clearly indicated; and, 

b. except where religious, fraternal, civic, political, 
charitable, or civic organizations provide entertainment, as 
in the case of *'fund raisers." 

221. Noise for entertainment purposes. 

(a) It is unlawful for any person or persons to play, 
iise, operate, or permit to be played, used, or operated, any 
radio, musical instrument, phonograph, or other machine 
or device for the producing or reproducing of sound: 

(1) If such sound is for the purpose of entertainment 
or is used for that purpose; and, 

(2) (i) If the noise source is located in or upon a pub- 
lic street, highivay, building, sidewalk, park, thorough- 



ORDINANCES 99 

fare, or other public area, or is located in or upon a public 
access area, such as a shopping mall, parking lot, etc., or 
on any private property, and the sound can be heard more 
than fifty (SO) feet from its source; or 

(ii) If the noise source is in a building or other struc- 
ture and the sound can be heard more than one hundred 
(100) feet away from the building or structure or the 
boundaries of the property surrounding such building or 
structure, whichever is greater, 

(b)(1) It shall be prima facie evidence of a violation 
of this section if the sound can be heard outside the limits 
descHbed. 

(2) Where the noise source is located in a building or 
other structure, the owner^ occupant, resident, manager, 
or other person in charge of the premises shall, if present, 
be presumed to have permitted the noise in the absence 
of evidence to the contrary. 

(3) Where portable noise producing devices such as 
radios, tape machines, etc., are present in, or being trans- 
ported through, a public area, street, etc., the person or 
persons in possession of the device shall be presumed to 
have permitted the noise in the absence of evidence to the 
contrary. 

(U) A police officer may, if he ha^ probable cause to 
believe a prima facie violation of this section is being com- 
mitted in his presence, view, or hearing, warn the apparent 
perpetrator or perpetrators to cease such noise as violates 
this section. If the violation persists after such warning, 
the officer may arrest without warrant the perpetrator or 
perpetrators of the violation, and it shall not be necessary 
for the officer to have received a complaint in order to so 
act. 

(c) Any person violating any provision of this section 
shall be guilty of a misdemeanor and upon conviction 
thereof shall be subject to a fine of not less than one dollar 
($1.00) and not more than one hundred dollars ($100.00), 
or shall be subject to imprisonment for not more than 
thirty (30) days, or shall be subject to both such fine and 
imprisonment in the discretion of the court, and shall pay 
costs of the prosecution. 



100 ORDINANCES Ord. No. 605 

(d) The provisions of this section shall not apply to 
sound equipment used at memorial stadium, to city spon- 
sored events in public parks, or to Federal, State or Local 
Governmental Agencies or Public Service Companies as 
defined in Article 78 of the Annotated Code of Maryland. 

222. Commercial advertising — noise. 

(a) It shall be unlaivful for any person, group, asso- 
ciation, company, partnership, corporation, or other com- 
mercial enterprise to broadcast sound over a speaker^ loud- 
speaker, or other device for the producing or reproducing 
of sound in any manner so as to allow the said sound to 
be audible to normal human hearing beyond a distance of 
one hundred (100) feet from the premises of the building 
.or property ivherein such device is located or upon which 
or to ivhich such device is affixed. 

(b) The oivner, manager, or other person in charge of 
the building or premises from ivhich such sound emanates 
shall be presumed to be responsible therefore in the absence 
of evidence to the contrary. 

(c) A law enforcement officer hearing such sound more 
than one hundred (100) feet from the boundaries of the 
premises may investigate to determine the identity of the 
person responsible, and may, after knocking, enter peace- 
fully upon the property to make the necessary inquines. 
Without the necessity of a complaint from a private party, 
the officer may seek a ivarrant, summons, or other appro- 
pnate process for the violator. 

(d) A violation of this section shall be a misdemeanor 
and the person, company, or other organization found 
guilty of such a violation shall be subject to a fine of not 
less than fifty dollars ($50.00) and not more than one 
hundred fifty dollars ($150.00), in the discretion of the 
court. Every day upon ivhich the offending noise is broad- 
cast shall be considered a separate violation. 

223. Temporary exemptions. 

A permit for a temporary exemption from the provisions 
of this section may be issued by the Director of Finance 
for commercial, political, civic, charitable, and other or- 
ganizations and activities such as fund raisers, carnivals, 



ORDINANCES 101 

bazaars, meetings, and other activities of other than a day- 
to-day nature. The Director of Finance is empowered to 
issue such permits tvhenever possible, after considering 
the date, time of day, nature of the activity, reason for 
the activity, and impact upon the surrounding area, to- 
gether with other relevant circumstances. 

Each application for such permit shall be addressed to 
the director, accompanied by a fee of ten dollars ($10.00), 
and. shall set forth the date and the hours bettveen ivhich 
such use is to be made, the nature of the mechanical device 
to be employed for such purpose and the person to be in 
charge of the operation thereof. 

Sec. 2. And be it further ordained, That if any provision 
of this ordinance or the application thereof to any person 
or circumstance is held invalid for any reason in a court 
of competent jurisdiction, the invalidity does not affect

ordinance are declared severable.

The Chapters and Ordinances listed above in this Recital 
B are collectively referred to as the "Bond Acts." 

C. The Bond Anticipation Note Act authorizes and 
empowers the City to borrow money in anticipation of 
the issuance of its bonds and to evidence such borrowing 
by the issuance and sale of its bond anticipation notes 
in aggregate amount not greater than the authorized 
amount of the bonds in anticipation of the sale of which 
the notes are issued and sold. The Bond Anticipation 
Note Act provides that such notes shall be payable as 
to interest and principal (except to the extent paid from 



ORDINANCES 



183 



proceeds of the sale of the notes) from the first proceeds 
of the bonds in anticipation of the sale of which such 
notes are issued. The Bond Anticipation Note Act fur- 
ther authorizes and empowers the City to pay up to 
twelve months' interest on the notes from the proceeds 
of the notes. 

D. The Bond Acts authorize and empower the City 
to borrow the following amounts for the purposes speci- 
fied in the Bond Acts, of which the following amounts 
currently are unissued:

E. The general obligation bonds authorized to be 
issued pursuant to the Bond Acts are sometimes referred 
to herein as the "Bonds". 



186 ORDINANCES Ord. No. 633 

F. The Bond Acts confer upon the Board of Finance 
of the City (as successor to the Commissioners of Fi- 
nance of the City) certain powers in connection with 
the Bonds, including, without limitation, the power to 
determine the form or forms of Bonds, the date of the 
Bonds issued at any particular time, the right of re- 
demption of the Bonds prior to maturity and the rate 
or rates of interest to be borne by the Bonds. 

G. The Bond Anticipation Note Act authorizes the 
sale of any notes to be issued pursuant to such Act by 
public sale or by private negotiation with prospective 
purchasers, if such negotiated sale is deemed by the City 
to be in the best interest of the City. 

H. Authority for the issuance of refunding notes is 
contained in Article 31, Section 24 of the Annotated Code 
of Maryland (1976 Replacement Volume and 1981 Cu- 
mulative Supplement). Article 31, Section 24 is some- 
times referred to in this Ordinance as the ''Refunding 
Bond Enabling Act'\ 

I. The Refunding Bond Enabling Act authorizes and 
empowers the City to issue and sell refunding obligations 
for the purpose of refunding any of its obligations then 
outstanding, provided that the public purpose of realiz- 
ing savings in the effective costs of debt service to the 
City is achieved. Such savings may be a direct result of 
the refunding or may result from a reduction in debt 
service effectuated through a debt restructuring. The 
City may, at a public meeting, determine that any refund- 
ing obligations be sold on a negotiated basis without the 
solicitation of bids. 

J. The City proposes to spend the proceeds of such 
refunding notes hereby authorized for the general public 
purposes of paying, prepaying, refinancing or restructur- 
ing the debt evidenced by the bond anticipation notes or 
any- refunding notes issued pursuant to this Ordinance. 

K. The City desires to use its borrowing powers to 
provide for an efficient and flexible debt management 
program to meet the borrowing needs of the City in a 
responsible manner by using recently available financing 
methods designed to provide substantial advantages to 



ORDINANCES 187 

municipal borrowers during unfavorable bond market 
conditions. 

Section 1. Be it ordained by the Mayor and City Council 
of Baltimore, That, acting pursuant to the Bond Antici- 
pation Note Act and the Refunding Bond Enabling Act 
and in accordance with the Bond Acts, it is hereby found 
and determined, as follows: 

(A) General economic conditions are extremely un- 
settled and require sensitive and careful debt manage- 
ment in order to reduce to the greatest extent practical 
the cost of borrowing to the City. 

(B) Current bond market conditions are unusual, er- 
ratic, and extraordinarily unfavorable in comparison to 
historical bond market conditions. An inflexible approach 
to borrowing by the City threatens its ability to initiate 
necessary capital projects and will diminish the resources 
available to provide for the needs of the citizens of the 
City in the future. A flexible approach to borrowing taking 
advantage of demand for certain short term and other 
municipal obligations will best serve the interest of the 
City. 

(C) The existence of an expanding market for tax- 
exempt obligations structured in the form of short term 
or demand obligations or commercial paper or other obli- 
gations having varying and flexible maturities of from 
one to two hundred seventy days or more, and for obli- 
gations related to an interest rate that varies with a de- 
fined or stated indicator or index, or combinations of such 
maturities and rates, necessitates the establishment of 
procedures which permit the City to utilize such a market 
for its obligations. 

(D) The Board of Finance, as the entity primarily 
responsible for the issuance and sale of the City's certifi- 
cates of indebtedness, has the expertise and experience 
necessary to be primarily responsible for the determina- 
tion of matters set forth herein to be within its juris- 
diction. 

(E) Private, negotiated sales are the primary and 
most efficient means of marketing such short term obli- 



188 ORDINANCES Ord. No. 633 

gations, and in the absence of a determination by the 
Board of Finance to the contrary as to a particular issue 
or series, sales of obligations pursuant to this ordinance 
on a negotiated basis are in the best public interest and 
will result in the lowest cost to the City. 

(F) The City currently needs funds to pay part or 
all of the costs of those certain projects or uses necessary 
or desirable for the welfare of the citizens of the City 
and more particularly described in the Bond Acts. In 
order to provide the City with the flexibility required by 
current bond market conditions, and in order to permit 
the construction and funding of the projects and uses 
described in the Bond Acts to proceed prior to the issu- 
ance of the Bonds, the City has determined to issue and 
sell its bond anticipation notes or refunding notes pur- 
suant to this Ordinance in such amounts, on such terms 
and conditions and according to such procedures as are 
hereinafter provided. 

(G) The net proceeds from the sale of the City's re- 
funding notes authorized to be issued and sold by this 
Ordinance, shall be used and applied for the public pur- 
poses of (i) refinancing, restructuring, refunding or re- 
newing, in whole or in part, from time to time, the City's 
bond anticipation notes issued pursuant to this Ordinance 
and any refunding notes issued pursuant to this Ordi- 
nance; (ii) paying any redemption premiums and any 
interest accrued or to accrue to the date of redemption 
in connection with obligations being refinanced or re- 
funded from the proceeds of the refunding notes; and 
(iii) paying the costs of issuance of any series of refund- 
ing notes authorized under this Ordinance. 

Sec. 2. And he it further ordained, That the issuance, 
sale and delivery of an amount not exceeding that per- 
mitted by the Bond Anticipation Note Act, the Refunding 
Bond Enabling Act and the Bond Acts, but not outstand- 
ing at any one time in excess of fifty million dollars 
($50,000,000), aggregate principal amount of notes or 
refunding notes, hereby designated "Consolidated Bond 
Anticipation Notes" or "Consolidated Bond Anticipation 
Refunding Notes" (the "Notes") is hereby authorized, 
subject to the provisions of this Ordinance. The Notes 



ORDINANCES 189 

may be issued in one or more series, and each such series 
shall be identified by a designation by year and by letter, 
so that, for example, the first series (if issued in 1982 
and if the issuance of more than one series of notes 
hereunder is then contemplated) shall be designated *'Con- 
solidated Bond Anticipation Notes — 1982 Series A". The 
aggregate principal amount of Notes to be issued pur- 
suant to this Ordinance at any one time shall be deter- 
mined by the Board of Finance by resolution adopted 
prior to the delivery of the Notes. 

Sec. 3. And be it further ordained, That Notes or a 
series of Notes shall be dated as of the first day of the 
month in which the series of Notes is delivered unless 
the Board of Finance shall specify a different date in its 
resolution hereinafter described, and the Notes shall bear 
interest at an annual rate or rates payable semi-annually 
following the date of the series of Notes, unless the Board 
of Finance shall specify a different period of payment, so 
that if the Notes of a series are dated April 1, 1982 
interest on that series of Notes will be payable on Oc- 
tober 1, 1982, and semi-annually thereafter, unless the 
'Board of Finance specifies otherwise. The notes shall be 
in the denomination of Five Thousand Dollars ($5,000) 
each, and the Notes of each series of Notes shall be num- 
bered from one (1) consecutively upwards, unless, as to 
each matter, otherwise determined by the Board of Fi- 
nance in its resolution hereinafter described. 

Sec. 4. And he it further ordained, That, prior to the 
delivery of any series of Notes, the Board of Finance 
shall adopt a resolution or resolutions which shall pre- 
scribe, subject to the Bond Anticipation Note Act, the Re- 
funding Bond Enabling Act and the Bond Acts as ap- 
plicable, (i) the principal amount of Notes to be issued 
as a series at any one time, (ii) the date of issue of the 
series of Notes, (iii) the interest rate to be borne by the 
series of Notes, or the method by which such interest 
rate shall be computed, including the establishment of 
limitations on the interest rate, beyond which further 
approvals of the Board of Finance are required; (iv) the 
time periods and method for payment of interest on the 
Notes; (v) the redemption provisions, if any, for the 



190 ORDINANCES Ord. No. 633 

series of Notes, (vi) the maturity or maturities of the 
series of Notes, (vii) the method of competitive sale if 
any series of Notes is determined to be sold at competitive 
sale rather than the negotiated sale found herein to be 
in the best public interest, (viii) the denominations of 
any Notes, (ix) the form, use of registration and means 
of payment of the Notes, and (x) any additional terms 
necessary or appropriate to reflect any matters provided 
in that resolution. 

The Board of Finance is hereby authorized to adopt a 
master resolution to establish procedures to facilitate the 
prompt determination and approval of one or more of the 
matters set forth above. Such procedures may include 
telephonic approval and subsequent telegraphic or written 
confirmation of one or more of such matters by a desig- 
nated officer of the City if prescribed guidelines or param- 
eters set forth in the master resolution, or any amend- 
ment thereto, are not exceeded. 

The Board is further authorized to establish a proce- 
dure for use of a variable or floating rate for any issue 
of Notes, and to establish any necessary relations with a 
commercial bank or other appropriate institution to facili- 
tate the payment of short-term Notes, including the use 
of general or stand-by letters of credit, loan agreements, 
revolving loans or notes or similar arrangements. 

The Board may also take such further or additional 
actions as are needed to permit the issuance of Notes in 
the nature of commercial paper as authorized by the Bond 
Anticipation Note Act. 

The period during which interest may be capitalized 
for any series of Notes shall not exceed a period of twelve 
(12) months, unless a longer period is allowed by law at 
the time of issuance of the series of Notes. 

Any resolution or resolutions adopted by the Board of 
Finance pursuant to this Ordinance shall be deemed to 
be of an administrative nature. 

Sec. 5. And be it further ordained, That the City hereby 
covenants that (i) it will pay the interest on and princi- 
pal of the Notes, to the extent not paid from proceeds of 



ORDINANCES 191 

the Notes, from the proceeds of the Bonds, and (ii) it will 
issue the Bonds when, and as soon as, the reason for de- 
ferring their issuance no longer exists; but in any event, 
in sufficient time to permit the payment of the Notes at 
maturity or extended maturity. 

Sec. 6. And be it further ordained, That the City and 
the purchasers of the Notes recognize the possibility, but 
do not anticipate, that the City may be unable to issue 
the Bonds in sufficient time to provide for payment of the 
interest on and the principal of the Notes at or prior to 
their maturity or extended maturity. The City hereby 
covenants that in such event the City will levy ad valorem 
taxes upon each one hundred dollars ($100.00) of prop- 
erty within the corporate limits of the City of Baltimore 
subject to assessment for full City taxes, at a rate suffi- 
cient to provide for the payment, when due, of the prin- 
cipal of and interest on all Notes. 

To assure the performance by the City of the provi- 
sions of this Section, the full faith and credit and un- 
limited taxing power of the City are hereby irrevocably 
pledged to the payment at maturity of the principal of 
and interest on the Notes hereby authorized and to the levy 
and collection of the taxes hereinabove described as and 
when such taxes may become necessary in order to provide 
sufficient funds to meet the debt service requirements of 
the Notes hereby authorized to be issued; this pledge is 
made hereby for the benefit of the holders, from time to 
time, of the Notes hereby authorized. 

The City hereby solemnly covenants and agrees with 
each holder of any of the Notes hereby authorized to levy 
and collect the taxes hereinabove described and to take 
any other action that may be appropriate from time to 
time during the period that any of such Notes remain 
outstanding and unpaid to provide the funds necessary to 
make principal and interest payments thereon, when due. 

Sec. 7. And be it further ordained, That all Notes shall 
be executed in the name of the Mayor and City Council 
of Baltimore and on its behalf by the manual or facsimile 
signature of the Mayor of the City and the Director of 
Finance of the City and the corporate seal of the City 



192 ORDINANCES Ord. No. 633 

shall be imprinted thereon, attested by the manual sig- 
nature of the Custodian or the Alternate Custodian of the 
Seal of the City. 

If any official whose signature shall appear on any 
series of the Notes shall cease to be such official prior to 
the delivery of any series of Notes, or, in the event any 
such official whose signature shall appear on any series 
of Notes shall have become such after the date of issue 
thereof, the Notes of such series shall nevertheless be 
valid and legally binding obligations of the City in ac- 
cordance with their terms. 

The Notes shall be fully registered as to both principal 
and interest in the name or names of the owner or owners 
thereof on books kept for such purpose at the office of 
the Director of Finance of the City, City Hall, Baltimore, 
Maryland 21202. The principal of the Notes shall be pay- 
able at the principal office of the Chase Manhattan Bank 
of New York, unless a different place of payment is es- 
tablished by Resolution of the Board of Finance. The 
interest on the Notes shall be payable by the City by 
check or draft mailed to the registered owners thereof at 
their respective addresses as they appear on the Note 
registration books of the City. If a determination is made 
by the Board of Finance to sell all or a portion of the 
Notes at competitive sale, the Notes may be coupon notes 
payable at such place and in such manner as provided 
by the Board of Finance in the resolution making such 
determination. 

Except as provided hereinafter or in ordinances or reso- 
lutions of the Mayor and City Council of Baltimore adopted 
prior to the issuance and delivery of any series of Notes, 
or in resolutions of the Board of Finance (to the extent 
authorized by this Ordinance), all Notes shall be substan- 
tially in the following form, with appropriate insertions 
as therein indicated or as otherwise approved by the Board 
of Finance and with such modifications as may be appro- 
priate for refunding notes, which form is hereby adopted 
by the City and all of the covenants and conditions therein 
contained are hereby made binding upon the City, includ- 
ing the promise to pay therein contained:

If the Board of Finance determines to offer all or any 
part of the Notes for sale at competitive sale as author- 
ized by this Ordinance or in the event bond market con- 
ditions or other considerations relevant to the sale of 
the Notes are determined by the Board of Finance to make 
such action necessary or appropriate, the Board of Fi- 
nance may provide by resolution that the Notes may be 
issued in bearer coupon form and may make such changes 
in the foregoing form or registered Note as the Board of 
Finance may determine to be appropriate to implement 
such determination, including (without limitation) provid- 
ing the form of coupon to be attached to the Notes. 

Sec. 8. And he it further ordained, That, pursuant to 
the authority of the Bond Anticipation Note Act and the 
Refunding Bond Enabling Act, it is hereby determined 
that considering the nature and the maturity of the Notes, 
present bond market conditions, the identity of prospec- 
tive purchasers indicating an interest in purchasing the 
Notes and other relevant considerations arising from cur- 
rent economic conditions, it would be in the best interests 
of the City to sell the entire authorized principal amount 
of the Notes at private (negotiated) sale; however, cur- 
rent bond market conditions including (without limitation) 
substantial, rapid variations in interest rates and the 



ORDINANCES 197 

present overall record high level of interest rates indi- 
cate bond market conditions which could change rapidly 
so that, at some subsequent time, it might better serve 
the interests of the City to offer and sell the Notes, either 
in whole or in part, at competitive sale; taking these fac- 
tors into account, the City has determined to authorize, 
and does hereby authorize, the Board of Finance (i) to 
sell a portion of the Notes at private (negotiated) sale, 
(ii) to sell the remaining principal amount of the Notes 
at private (negotiated) sale or at competitive sale, if the 
Board of Finance finds and determines that market con- 
ditions at the time of the sale of the Notes (including 
without limitation, the availability of interested prospec- 
tive purchasers to negotiate for a purchase of the Notes) 
to sell such balance at competitive sale, or (iii) to sell the 
entire amount of the Notes at competitive sale, if the 
Board of Finance finds and determines that such bond 
market conditions existing at the time of sale then indi- 
cate that a competitive sale would be in the best interests 
of the City. The Board of Finance shall, by resolution, 
award the sale of any series of Notes to the purchaser 
or purchasers thereof. In connection with such award, the 
City is authorized to enter into a purchase contract, loan 
agreement or other document evidencing the agreement of 
the City and the purchaser or purchasers of the Notes 
which document (i) may contain such covenants and as- 
surances deemed necessary or appropriate in connection 
with such award and (ii) shall be approved by the Board 
of Finance in the resolution awarding the sale of the Notes. 

The Notes of each series shall be suitably prepared and 
duly executed and delivered to the purchaser or purchasers 
at the expense of the City, from time to time, as deter- 
mined by resolution of the Board of Finance, upon pay- 
ment of the face amount of the series of Notes plus ac- 
crued interest from the date of the series of Notes to the 
date of delivery. Such payment shall be made in Baltimore 
Clearinghouse Funds by certified check upon, or bank 
cashier's, treasurer's or official check of, a responsible 
banking institution. 

Sec. 9. And he it further ordained, That, the proceeds 
from the sale of the Notes shall be paid to the Director 
of Finance, who shall deduct from the proceeds of the 



198 ORDINANCES Ord. No. 633 

issue the amount, if any, paid on account of accrued in- 
terest on such series, which amount he shall set apart for 
payment on account of the first maturing interest on the 
Notes of such series. 

Upon approval of the appropriate vouchers, in accord- 
ance with the established procedure of the City, the Di- 
rector of Finance shall pay, from the proceeds of each 
series of Notes in his hands, all expenses incurred in the 
issuance of such series of Notes, including, without limi- 
tation, costs of engraving, printing, advertising, attorneys* 
fees and all other incidental expenses connected therewith. 

The Director of Finance shall credit to a special account 
on his books the amount, if any, of the proceeds of each 
• series of Notes designated as capitalized interest on such 
series of Notes. 

The balance of the proceeds of each series of Notes 
shall be credited by the Director of Finance to the several 
accounts on his books for the projects or uses described 
in the Bond Acts and the Director of Finance shall make 
disbursements for such projects or uses in accordance with 
the established procedure of the City. 

Prior to expenditure of such proceeds, such proceeds 
or any part thereof may be invested by the Director of 
Finance, with the approval of the Mayor, and within any 
limitation and in the manner provided by law. Such in- 
vestment shall be made, however, in securities which will 
have dates of maturity coinciding with, or prior to, the 
dates upon which funds will be required for the applicable 
project or use. 

If the funds derived from the sale of the Notes shall 
exceed the amount needed to finance the project or uses 
authorized by the Bond Acts, or if the City shall deter- 
mine that the public interest requires a change in the 
capital improvements program of the City, the funds so 
borrowed and not expended for the public improvements 
provided by this Ordinance shall be set apart in a sepa- 
rate fund by the Director of Finance and applied in pay- 
ment of the next principal maturity of the Notes. 

Sec. 10. And he it further ordained, That, the Director 
of Finance of the City is hereby authorized to make such 



ORDINANCES 199 

changes in the form of Note set forth in this Ordinance 
as he shall deem necessary to effect the purposes of this 
Ordinance or to comply with recommendations of legal 
counsel, and the Director of Finance is hereby authorized 
to make such further modifications in such form as will 
not alter the substance of such form, all such modifica- 
tions to be in accordance with and pursuant to the au- 
thority of the Bond Anticipation Note Act and the Re- 
funding Bond Enabling Act. 

Sec. 11. And be it further ordained, That, the Mayor 
and the Chief, Bureau of Treasury Management shall be 
the officers of the City responsible for the issuance of the 
Notes within the meaning of Section 1.103-13 (a) (2) (ii) 
(C) of the Arbitrage Regulations (defined herein). The 
Mayor and the Chief, Bureau of Treasury Management 
shall also be the officers of the City responsible for the 
execution and delivery (on the date of issuance of each 
series of Notes) of a certificate of the City (the "Section 
103(c) Certificate") which complies with the requirements 
of Section 103(c) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1954, as 
amended (''Section 103(c)") and the applicable regulations 
thereunder (the "Arbitrage Regulations") , and such officials 
are hereby authorized and directed to execute the Section 
103(c) Certificate and to deliver such certificate to bond 
counsel on the date of the issuance of each series of Notes. 

The City shall set forth in the Section 103(c) Certificate 
its reasonable expectation as to relevant facts, estimates 
and circumstances relating to the use of the proceeds of 
the series of Notes, or of any monies, securities or other 
obligations to the credit of any account of the City which 
may be deemed to be proceeds of the series of Notes 
pursuant to Section 103(c) or the arbitrage regulations 
(collectively, "Note Proceeds"). The City covenants with 
each of the holders of any of the Notes that (i) the facts, 
estimates and circumstances set forth in the Section 103 (c) 
Certificate will be based on the City's reasonable expecta- 
tions on the date of issuance of the series of Notes and 
will be, to the best of the certifying officials' knowledge, 
true and correct, as of that date. 

The City covenants with each of the holders of any of 
the Notes that it will not make, or (to the extent that 



200 ORDINANCES Ord. No. 633 

it exercises control or direction) permit to be made, any 
use of the Note Proceeds which would cause the Notes to 
be "arbitrage bonds" within the meaning of Section 103(c) 
and the Arbitrage Regulations. The City further covenants 
that it will comply with Section 103(c) of the Internal 
Revenue Code of 1954, as amended, and the regulations 
thereunder which are applicable to the Notes on the date 
of issuance of the Notes and which may subsequently law- 
fully be made applicable to the Notes. 

Sec. 12. And he it further ordained, That, authority is 
hereby conferred on the Board of Finance, to take the 
following actions and to make the following commitments 
on behalf of the City : 

(a) to deliver such agreements as are needed to im- 
plement the financing authorized herein, in the form de- 
termined by resolution of the Board of Finance; 

(b) to prepare and distribute disclosure memoranda

dient in connection with the issuance and sale of the Notes. 

Sec. 13. And he it further ordained, That, the Board of 
Finance may by resolution approve the renewal, restruc- 
turing, extension or modification of the terms of the Notes, 
without the formal issuance of refunding notes, and with

action is otherwise consistent w^th the terms of this Ordi- 
nance. In connection with the issuance of the Notes, the 
City may find it necessary or appropriate to purchase the 
Notes and hold them for resale rather than to have such 
purchase serve as redemption of the Notes. The Board of 
Finance may provide for such purchase, include any appro- 
priate provision in the form of Note to that effect, and 
provide that purchase of the Notes by the City shall not 
be deemed a redemption unless otherwise indicated by the 
City by cancellation of the Note or othenvise.

RECITALS 

Sections 266A through 266-1, inclusive, of Article 41 
of the Annotated Code of Maryland, as re-enacted and 
amended (the "Enabling Legislation") constitute those 
provisions of Maryland law authorizing the issuance of 
industrial revenue bonds by all the counties and mu- 
nicipalities of the State of Maryland (the ''State"). 

The Enabling Legislation empowers the counties and 
municipalities of the State, including the Mayor and 
City Council of Baltimore (the "City"), to issue reve- 
nue bonds and to loan the proceeds of the sale of such 
revenue bonds to an "industrial concern" to finance the 



256 ORDINANCES Ord. No. 653 

acquisition by such concern of "industrial buildings" 
and ''port facilities", as those terms are defined in the 
Enabling Legislation. The Enabling Legislation further 
empowers the counties and cities of the State to use 
the proceeds of such revenue bonds to finance the acqui- 
sition or construction of "industrial buildings" and "port 
facilities" and to lease or sell by installment sale those 
facilities so acquired to "industrial concerns." The 
Enabling Legislation declares it to be the legislative 
purpose to relieve conditions of unemployment in the 
State, to encourage the increase of industry and a 
balanced economy in the State, to assist in the retention 
of existing industry in the State, to promote economic 
development, to reduce pollution of the environment and 
protect natural resources, and in this manner to pro- 
mote the health, welfare and safety of the residents of 
each of the counties and municipalities of the State. 

Ordinance No. 887 of the City, passed by the City 
Council on October 30, 1978, and approved by the Mayor 
on October 31, 1978, as amended by Ordinance No. 115 
of the City, passed by the City Council on June 23, 1980, 
and approved by the Mayor on June 30, 1980 (collec- 
tively, "Ordinance No. 887"), by its terms, constituted 
a binding and enforceable commitment by the City to 
issue its revenue bonds pursuant to the Enabling Legis- 
lation and to loan the proceeds to Indiana Farm Bureau 
Cooperative Association, Inc. (the "Association") in 
order to finance a port facilities project in the City of 
Baltimore, Maryland (the "Project"), as more partic- 
ularly described in Ordinance No. 887. 

Since the passage of Ordinance No. 887, the Associ- 
ation, through active planning for and development of 
such port facilities, has been able to provide a supple- 
mented financing and security structure which will 
allow better utilization of the Project and the port 
facilities of which the Project is a part and which could 
prove advantageous to the City and the Association, 
especially during a period of severe market fluctuation 
and uncertainty (the "Financing Structure") . Therefore, 
the Association has approached the City to present the 
plan for the Financing Structure as a supplement to 
Ordinance No. 887. The City has determined that such 



ORDINANCES 257 

supplementation will better implement the spirit and 
intent of Ordinance No. 887 and is in the best interests 
of the City, the citizens of the City of Baltimore and 
the citizens of the State. It is the present purpose and 
intent of the City that Ordinance No. 887, as supple- 
mented by this Ordinance, continue to constitute a bind- 
ing and enforceable commitment of the City to issue its 
revenue bonds to finance the Project. 

The Association has also advised the City that because 
of certain events that have occurred since the passage 
of Ordinance No. 887 which affect the cost of the Project, 
including (without limitation) substantial increases in 
the costs of labor and materials caused by inflation, the 
total costs of acquisition of the Project are now expected 
to exceed $20,000,000, but are not expected to exceed 
$25,000,000. Accordingly, the Association has requested 
that the City enact this supplemental ordinance to in- 
crease to $25,000,000 the aggregate principal amount of 
revenue bonds that may be issued to finance the Project. 

Accordingly, the City has determined to implement 
further its existing commitment under Ordinance No. 
887 to issue revenue bonds to finance the Project, by 
supplementing its authorization to issue revenue bonds 
under Ordinance No. 887, by authorizing the issuance 
and sale of not exceeding $25,000,000 aggregate prin- 
cipal amount of its "Mayor and City Council of Balti- 
more, Port Facilities Revenue Bonds (Indiana Farm 
Bureau Cooperative Association, Inc. Project)" (the 
'"Bonds"), in one or more series, and to loan the pro- 
ceeds of the Bonds, utilizing the Financing Structure, 
in order to finance the acquisition and construction of 
the Project to relieve conditions of unemployment in the 
State, to encourage the increase of industry and a 
balanced economy in the State, to assist in the retention 
of existing industry in the State, to promote economic 
development, to reduce pollution of the environment and 
protect natural resources, and in this manner to pro- 
mote the health and welfare of the residents of the City 
of Baltimore and the State. 

This Ordinance ratifies and reaffirms the transaction 
(now more fully detailed) which the Association pro- 



258 ORDINANCES Ord. No. 653 

posed to the City by a letter of intent dated September 
29, 1972, as supplemented by a letter dated April , 
1982, in accordance with Section 266B(d) of the Ena- 
bling Legislation. 

As used hereinafter in this Ordinance, "Company" 
shall refer to (i) the Association, (ii) any subsidiary 
of the Association, or (iii) any entity organized to fa- 
cilitate the Financing Structure for the purpose of ac- 
quiring and operating the Project, either alone or in any 
arrangement with any of the entities set forth in items 
(i), (ii),and (iii) of this paragraph. 

Section 1. Be it ordained by the Mayor and City Council 
of Baltimore, That, the City, acting pursuant to the En- 
abling Legislation, hereby confirms, restates and augments 
the findings set forth in Ordinance No. 887; and it is 
hereby found and determined, as follows: 

1. The issuance of revenue bonds by the City pursuant 
to the Enabling Legislation in order to loan the proceeds 
to the Company for the purpose of financing the Project 
will facilitate and expedite the acquisition of the Project 
by the Company; 

2. The accomplishment of the transaction contemplated 
and authorized by this Ordinance, including (without limi- 
tation) the completion of the Project by the Company and 
the financing thereof will (i) sustain jobs and employ- 
ment, thereby relieving conditions of unemployment in 
the State and in the City of Baltimore; (ii) encourage the 
increase of industry and a balanced economy in the State 
and in the City of Baltimore; (iii) assist in the retention 
of existing industry in the State and in the City of Bal- 
timore or in attracting new industry to the State and 
the City of Baltimore; (iv) promote economic develop- 
ment; (v) reduce pollution of the environment and pro- 
tect natural resources; and (vi) promote the health, wel- 
fare and safety of the residents of the State and of the 
City of Baltimore. 

3. In addition to authorizing the City itself to acquire 
and either to lease or to sell such facilities to an industrial 
concern, the Enabling Legislation, as an alternative pro- 
cedure, authorizes financing of port facilities to be ac- 



ORDINANCES 259 

complished in the form of a loan to the industrial con- 
cern. It is hereby determined by the City to be in the 
best interests of the citizens of the City of Baltimore to 
finance the Project by a loan to the Company. This Or- 
dinance further contemplates and authorizes the assign- 
ment of the City's interest in the payments made and 
security provided pursuant to the Financing Documents 
(defined hereinafter) to a trustee pursuant to a trust in- 
denture (the 'Indenture"). 

4. Neither the Bonds nor interest coupons issued under 
the authority of the Enabling Legislation constitute an 
indebtedness of the City, the State or any other political 
subdivision thereof, or a charge against the general credit 
or taxing powers of any of them within the meaning of 
any constitutional provision, provisions of the City Charter 
or statutory limitation, and shall never constitute or give 
rise to any pecuniary liability of the City, the State or any 
other political subdivision thereof. The principal amount 
of the payments to be made by the Company (whether as 
scheduled, at maturity, upon acceleration, upon default 
or otherwise) pursuant to a financing agreement or any 
other document constituting a part of the Financing Struc- 
ture executed pursuant to this Ordinance (collectively, the 
"Financing Documents") will be, by the terms of the 
Indenture, assigned to, and will be disbursed by, the in- 
dependent trustee appointed by the City Council or Board 
of Finance of the City pursuant hereto; no such moneys 
will be commingled with the City's funds or be subject 
to the absolute control of the City but only to such 
limited supervision and checks as are deemed necessary 
or desirable to insure that the proceeds of the Bonds are 
used to accomplish the public purposes of the Enabling 
Legislation and this Ordinance. The public purposes of the 
Enabling Legislation are intended to be achieved by fa- 
cilitating the acquisition of port facilities by the Company. 

5. The City will acquire no interest in the Project 
(except that, when the Bonds are issued, the City may be 
granted a lien or security interest pursuant to the Fi- 
nancing Documents) for the purpose of creating any se- 
curity for the Bonds, which security shall be solely and 
exclusively the absolute, irrevocable, unconditional obliga- 
tion of the Company to make the payments required by 



260 ORDINANCES Ord. No. 653 

the Financing Documents, together with such other se- 
curity, if any, as may be provided in the Financing 
Documents. 

Accordingly, this Ordinance definitely determines that 
the amount of revenue necessary to be set apart and ap- 
plied to the payment of principal, interest and premium, 
if any, of the Bonds shall be the entire amount of the 
receipts and revenues of the City from payments under 
the Financing Documents, except for any rights of the 
City to indemnification and to payments for the City's 
administrative expenses. The Financing Documents may 
provide for additional security to be granted for the 
Bonds so long as such security is consistent with the 
purpose and intent of the Enabling Legislation. 

6. No part or proportion of the receipts and revenues 
of the City from the payments under the Financing Docu- 
ments shall be set aside as a depreciation account (men- 
tioned in the Enabling Legislation) since the City finds 
it unnecessary to create, either in its own behalf or on 
behalf of the holders of any Bonds, an interest in the 
Project and such a depreciation account would (i) be 
inconsistent with the transactions authorized hereby and 
(ii) place an unreasonable burden on the Company so as 
to adversely affect the feasibility of the transactions and 
thus frustrate the legislative purposes of the Enabling 
Legislation. 

7. The Financing Structure shall consist of a loan of 
the proceeds of the Bonds to the Company and any agree- 
ment, transaction or arrangement among the entities con- 
stituting the Company which permits the acquisition and 
operation of the Project in a manner most beneficial to 
the City and any such entity. The Financing Structure 
may include, without limitation, a combination of interim 
and long term financing, advances of Bond proceeds or 
any. other amounts between or among such entities to 
accomplish the acquisition of the Project, equity invest- 
ment and participation (by one or more persons or en- 
tities) in the financing of the Project, the mortgaging of 
all or any part of the Project or the port facilities of 
which the Project is a part to the City for assignment to 
the Bond trustee and the leasing or sub-leasing of all or 



ORDINANCES 261 

any part of the Project or of such port facilities by or 
among any such entities. It is intended that the specific 
financing structure contemplated for any series of Bonds 
shall be set forth in the Administrative Resolution (de- 
fined herein) implementing this Ordinance with respect 
to such series of Bonds. 

Sec. 2. And he it further ordained, That this Ordinance 
is intended to be, and shall constitute, an affirmation of 
the City's intent to issue the Bonds as expressed in Or- 
dinance No. 887, and a continuation of the binding and 
enforceable commitment by the City to the Company to 
issue, deliver and sell the Bonds authorized hereby for the 
financing of the Project. 

Sec. 3. And he it further ordained, That the issuance, 
sale and delivery of not exceeding $25,000,000 aggregate 
principal amount of revenue bonds, hereby designated 
"Mayor and City Council of Baltimore, Port Facilities 
Revenue Bonds (Indiana Farm Bureau Cooperative Asso- 
ciation, Inc. Project)", are hereby authorized, subject to 
the provisions of this Ordinance, the Enabling Legislation 
and the Indenture, such Bonds to be payable from, and 
secured by, the revenue derived from payments made by 
the Company pursuant to the Financing Documents and 
the proceeds, if any, of any other security granted for 
the Bonds pursuant to the Financing Documents. 

The aggregate principal amount of Bonds issued, sold 
and delivered pursuant to Ordinance No. 887 and this 
Ordinance shall not exceed $25,000,000, unless such 
amount shall be increased by an ordinance supplemental 
hereto; provided that any series of Bonds issued here- 
under to refund any series of Bonds previously issued 
hereunder shall replace that portion of the authorized 
face amount of Bonds previously issued and shall not be 
deemed to reduce the maximum authorized face amount 
of Bonds permitted to be issued hereunder. 

The Bonds authorized by this Ordinance may be issued 
in one or more series, and each such series shall be iden- 
tified by a letter designation. The Bonds may be further 
identified by the year of issue or such other appropriate 
designation as may be determined by the administrative 



262 ORDINANCES Ord. No. 653 

resolution or resolutions adopted prior to the delivery of 
the Bonds by the City Council or the Board of Finance, 
as the case may be (collectively, the ** Administrative Reso- 
lution"). The designation of the Bonds may be changed 
in the Administrative Resolution to identify any concern 
the credit of which is extended in connection with the 
Financing Structure. The aggregate principal amount of 
Bonds of any series shall be determined by the Adminis- 
trative Resolution adopted prior to the delivery of the 
Bonds. 

The obligation to repay the loan of the proceeds of the 
Bonds shall be evidenced by an unconditional obligation 
in the Financing Documents or a note or other instrument 
which the City and the Company deem to be sufficient for 
such purpose. In the event more than one series of Bonds 
are issued hereunder, it is contemplated that a separate 
obligation or series (which may be evidenced by a single 
instrument) of notes or other instruments of the Company 
(evidencing the obligation of the Company to repay the 
loan from the City) be issued to correspond with, and 
secure, each separate series of Bonds issued hereunder. 

The bonds of a series of Bonds shall be dated as of the 
first day of the month next following the date on which 
such series of Bonds is sold unless a different date shall 
be set in the Administrative Resolution. Such Bonds shall 
bear interest at a rate or rates, payable semi-annually, 
to be determined in the Administrative Resolution. 

The bonds of each series of Bonds issued hereunder 
shall mature on such date or dates as may be determined 
in the Administrative Resolution, but the last maturity 
of any such series of Bonds shall in no event exceed a 
period of thirty (30) years from the date of issuance of 
such series of Bonds (or such later date as may be per- 
mitted under the terms of the Enabling Legislation in 
effect on the date of such series of Bonds). If no maturity 
or maturities for a series of Bonds is determined in the 
Administrative Resolution all of the Bonds of such series 
shall mature on the date thirty (30) years from the date 
of such series of Bonds (or such later date as may be 
permitted under the terms of the Enabling Legislation in 
effect on the date of such series of Bonds). 



ORDINANCES 263 

Sec. 4. And be it further ordained, That the authority 
hereunder to issue the Bonds is intended and shall be 
deemed to include the authority to issue refunding bonds 
pursuant to the Enabling Legislation. References in this 
Ordinance to the ''Bonds" shall include such refunding 
bonds where appropriate. Prior to the issuance, sale and 
delivery of any series of refunding bonds, the Board of 
Finance or the City Council, as the case may be, shall 
adopt a resolution or resolutions which shall prescribe the 
maturity or maturities, interest rate or rates and other 
terms of such bonds and the price or prices at which such 
bonds will be sold. It is hereby found and determined that 
the best interests of the City will be served by selling 
such bonds by private negotiation by the City with a pro- 
spective purchaser (s), placement agent (s) or under- 
writer (s), unless, upon request of the Company, such 
resolution or resolutions provide that such bonds shall be 
sold at public sale. 

Any resolution or resolutions adopted pursuant to this 
Section of this Ordinance shall be deemed to be of an 
administrative nature and shall be effective upon approval 
by the Mayor or the Acting Mayor of the City. 

Any series of Bonds issued hereunder to refund any 
series of Bonds previously issued hereunder shall replace 
that portion of the authorized face amount of Bonds pre- 
viously issued and shall not be deemed to reduce the max- 
imum authorized face amount of Bonds permitted to be 
issued hereunder. 

Sec. 5. And he it further ordained, That, prior to the 
delivery of any series of Bonds, the Administrative Reso- 
lution shall prescribe the Financing Structure to be em- 
ployed with respect to the Project, the principal amount of 
Bonds to be issued as a series and the maturity or ma- 
turities, redemption provisions, and the sinking fund re- 
quirements, if any, for such series of Bonds. 

Prior to the deliveiy of any series of Bonds, the Admin- 
istrative Resolution may prescribe (i) the date of issue 
of such series of Bonds, (ii) any additional terms neces- 
sary or appropriate to reflect any matters provided by 
resolution and (iii) such other matters as may be deemed 



264 ORDINANCES Ord. No. 653 

appropriate by the City Council or the Board of Finance, 
as the case may be. 

The Administrative Resolution as contemplated in this 
Section 5 and in Sections 6, 7 and 8 shall be adopted by 
the Board of Finance, unless otherwise adopted by the 
City Council. The Administrative Resolution adopted pur- 
suant to this Ordinance shall be deemed to be of an admin- 
istrative nature and shall be effective upon approval by the 
Mayor or Acting Mayor of the City. The Administrative 
Resolution may be adopted in the form of a master reso- 
lution under which procedures are established to facilitate 
the prompt determination and approval of one or more 
of the matters contemplated in this Section 5 and in 
'Sections 6, 7 and 8. Such procedures may include tele- 
phonic approval and subsequent telegraphic or written 
confirmation of one or more of such matters by a desig- 
nated officer of the City if prescribed guidelines or param- 
eters set forth in the Administrative Resolution, or any 
amendment thereto, are not exceeded. 

The Board of Finance is further authorized to establish 
a procedure whereby a variable or flo'ating rate can be 
utilized for any series of Bonds, and to establish any 
necessary relations with a commercial bank or other ap- 
propriate institution to facilitate the payment of any series 
of Bonds, including the use of general or standby letters 
of credit, loan agreements, or revolving loans or notes or 
similar arrangements. 

Sec. 6. And be it further ordained, That it is hereby 
found and determined that the best interests of the City 
will be served by selling the Bonds at private sale as 
authorized by the Enabling Legislation, upon the terms 
and conditions determined by the Board of Finance as 
hereinafter authorized. 

(r) Authority is hereby conferred on the Board of 
Finance of the City to take the following actions and to 
make the following commitments on behalf of the Ciij 
for each series of Bonds : 

a. to determine the date, time and place when a 
purchase, placement or underwriting agreement shall be 



ORDINANCES 265 

submitted by the purchaser (s), placement agent (s) or 
underwriter (s) for the Bonds, such agreement to specify 
the interest rate or rates proposed to be paid on the Bonds, 
the price at which such Bonds are to be sold, and such 
other matters as the purchaser (s), placement agent (s) 
or underwriter (s) and such Board of Finance may deem 
necessary or desirable in order to effect the sale and de- 
livery of the Bonds; 

b. to determine the interest rate or rates to be 
paid by the City on the Bonds in accordance with the pro- 
posed purchase, placement or underwriting agreement sub- 
mitted by the purchaser (s), placement agent (s) or under- 
writer (s) for the Bonds, but only after the Company shall 
have given the City written approval of such rate or rates ; 

c. to appoint a bank having trust powers or a trust 
company, with the concurrence of the Company, as trustee 
for the Bonds to be issued pursuant to this Ordinance and 
to assign to such trustee, pursuant to the Indenture, the 
City's interest in the payments under the Financing Docu- 
ments and any other security granted for the Bonds pur- 
suant to the Financing Documents ; and 

d. in order to insure that such Bonds are issued 
without direct cost to the City, to provide for the payment, 
directly by the Company, of all costs, fees and expenses 
incurred by or on behalf of the City in connection with 
the issuance of the Bonds, such payment to include (with- 
out limitation) compensation to any persons performing 
services by or on behalf of the City in connection with the 
transactions contemplated by this Ordinance. 

(ii) Authority is hereby conferred on the Mayor or 
Acting Mayor of the City to take the following actions 
and to make the following commitments on behalf of the

AN ORDINANCE concerning 

INDUSTRIAL DEVELOPMENT REVENUE BONDS— 
(DAYS INNS OF AMERICA, INC.) 

FOR the purpose of amending Ordinance No. 415 adopted 
on July 2, 1981 so as to extend the time for the issuance 
and sale of certain industrial development revenue bonds 
of Days Inns of America, Inc., and to recognize the 
merger of Day Realty of South Carolina, Inc. into Days 
Inns of America, Inc. 

RECITALS 

On July 2, 1981, the Mayor and City Council of Bal- 
timore approved Ordinance No. 415, which authorized 
an industrial development revenue bond issue not to 
exceed $10,000,000 (the "Bonds") for Day Realty of 
South Carolina, Inc. Said Ordinance provided that such 
authorization would expire six months from approval 
if the bonds were not sold. On December 21, 1981, the 
Board of Finance approved a six-month extension of 
Ordinance No. 415. 

As a result of certain conditions unforeseeable at the 
time of the adoption of Ordinance No. 415 and its sub- 
sequent extension, the Bonds will be unable to be sold 
prior to the expiration of the 6-month extension. Ac- 
cordingly, the Mayor and the City Council have received 
a request from Days Inns of America, Inc. (the *'Bor- 
rower"), as successor to the business of Day Realty of 
South Carolina, Inc., by virtue of a merger between 
Day Realty of South Carolina, Inc. and the Borrower 
in which the Borrower was the surviving corporation, 
that the period to issue the Bonds be extended until 
January 1, 1983, with a six month extension thereto if 
approved by the Board of Finance. 

The Mayor and City Council of Baltimore desire to 
extend the time in which the Bonds may be sold inas- 
much as the 'Troject'* as defined in Ordinance No. 415,

lobjects and powers and in connection therewith to issue 
bonds, notes or other obligations (including refunding 
ibonds, notes or other obligations), all of which shall 
'be fully negotiable and payable, as to both principal and 
interest, solely from and secured solely by a pledge of

in connection with the property, facilities, developments 
and improvements whose financing is undertaken by

or otherwise acquired with the proceeds of such bonds, 
notes or other obligations, or (c) the contracts, mort- 
gages or other securities purchased or otherwise ac- 
quired with the proceeds of such bonds, notes or other

partnership organized and existing under the law of 
Maryland (herein referred to as the "Borrower"), pur- 
suant to which the Borrower has requested the City 
to participate in financing the icosts of the Borrower's 
completion of a certain project in the City of Baltimore, 
Maryland (herein referred to as the "Project"), by 
issuing and selling the City's industrial development 
revenue bonds in an aggregate principal sum not ex- 
ceeding $1,400,000.00 (hereinafter referred to as the 



ORDINANCES 317 

**Bonds"), and by making the proceeds of the Bonds 
available to the Borrower to be used by it for the sole 
and exclusive purpose of financing the costs of its com- 
pletion of the Project. 

The Project will consist generally of (a) the acqui- 
sition of one or more parcels of land located at or near 
the southwest corner formed by the intersection of Yt)rk 
Eoad and Tunbridge Road, in Baltim'ore, Maryland, and 
the existing improvements thereon (consisting of, among 
other things, a building containing approximately 12,000 
square feet of floor area), and/or (b) the demolition 
of such existing improvements and/or the renovation 
thereof for retail, oflSce and/or commercial uses, and/or

other improvements thereon, and/or (d) the acquisition, 
construction and installation in such existing and/or 
new improvements of such machinery and equipment, 
and such other improvements, as may be necessary or 
useful in connection with the operation thereof, and/or 
(e) the acquisition of such other interests in land (in- 
cluding, by way of example rather than of limitation, 
roads, rights of access, utilities and other necessary 
site preparation facilities) as may be necessiary or suit- 
able for the foregoing purposes. Upon its completion, 
the Project will be owned by the Borrower and leased 
to one or more tenants for use as retail, office and/or 
commercial facilities. 

The Enabling Law provides that the City may au- 
thorize and empower the City's Board of Finance (here- 
in referred to as the "Board") by resolution to deter- 
mine and set forth the form, terms, provisions, manner 
or method of issuing and selling the Bonds (including 
one or more negotiated or competitive bid sales), the 
time or times of their issuance, and any and all other

referred to as the "Enabling Law"), empowers the 
Mayor and City Council of Baltimore (herein referred 
to as the ''City") to borrow money to finance under- 
takings for the accomplishment of any of th3 City's 
purposes, objects and powers and in connection there- 
with to issue bonds, notes or other obligations (including 
refunding bonds, notes or other obligations), all of 
which shall be fully negotiable and payable, as to both 
principal and interest, solely from and secured solely

curities, purchased or otherwise acquired with the pro- 
ceeds of such bonds, notes or other obligations, or (c) 
the contracts, mortgages or other securities purchased 
or otherwise acquired with the proceeds of such bonds,

and promoting the health, welfare and safety of the 
residents thereof. 

The City has received a letter of intent dated April 
5, 1982 (hereinafter referred to as the ''Letter of In- 
tent") from Southwood Associates, a general partner- 
ship organized and existing under the law of Maryland 
(hereinafter referred to as the "Borrower"), pursuant 
to which the Borrower has requested the City to par- 
ticipate in financing the costs of the Borrower's com- 
pletion of a certain project in the City of Baltimore, 
Maryland (hereinafter referred to as the "Project"), 
by issuing and selling the City's industrial development 
revenue bonds in an aggregate principal sum not ex- 
ceeding $2,000,000 (hereinafter referred to as the 
"Bonds"), and by making the proceeds of the Bonds 
available to the Borrower to be used by it for the sole 
and exclusive purpose of financing the costs of its com- 
pletion of the Project. 

The Project will consist generally of (a) construc- 
tion of seventy-two (72) townhouse units for residential 
rental purposes to be located in the vicinity of Cherry- 
land Road and Reedbird Avenue in Baltimore City, 
Maryland, (b) the acquisition, construction and installa- 
tion in such improvements of such machinery and equip- 
ment, and such other improvements, as may be necessary 
or useful in connection with the operation thereof, and 
(c) the acquisition of such other interests in land (in- 
cluding, by way of example rather than of limitation, 
roads, rights of access, utilities and other necessary site 
preparation facilities) as may be necessary or suitable 
for the foregoing purposes. Upon its completion, the 
Project will be owned by the Borrower and leased to 
tenants for use as residential facilities. It is contem- 
plated that a minimum of twenty percent (20%) of 
the units will be occupied by persons who are eligible 
to receive rental assistance under the Section 8 Pro- 
gram of the National Housing Act, whether or not such 
persons actually receive any rental assistance. The iden- 
tity of the tenants have not yet been determined. 

The Enabling Law provides that the City may au- 
thorize and empower the City's Board of Finance (here- 
in referred to as the "Board") by resolution to determine

ticipation of the sale of which such notes are issued, and 
(b) to issue such Bonds when, and as soon as, the reason 
for deferring the issuance of the Bonds no longer exists. 
The timely issuance of such Bonds, however, is dependent 
upon matters not within the City's control, including (with- 
out limitation) the existence of a purchaser or purchasers 
of such Bonds when the reason for deferring the issuance 
of the Bonds no longer exists, and the effectiveness of 
various actions taken by the Borrower, its officers, agents

advisory group appointed by such Department to achieve 
high quality site, building and landscape design. 

Sec. 10. And be it further ordained, That the provisions 
of this Ordinance are severable, and if any provision, sen- 
tence, clause, section or part hereof is held illegal, invalid 
or unconstitutional or inapplicable to any person or cir- 
cumstance, such illegality, invalidity, unconstitutionality 
or inapplicability shall not affect or impair any of the re- 
maining provisions, sentences, clauses, sections or parts of 
this Ordinance or their application to other persons or cir- 
cumstances. It is hereby declared to be the legislative in- 
tent that this Ordinance would have been passed if such 
illegal, invalid or unconstitutional provision, sentence, 
clause, section or part had not been included herein, and 
if the person or circumstances to which this Ordinance or 
any part hereof is inapplicable had been specifically ex- 
empted herefrom. 

Sec. 11. And he it further ordained. That either the 
Bonds or any bond anticipation notes issued pursuant to 
the provisions of Section 8 hereof must be issued and 



352 ORDINANCES Ord. No. 670 

sold within six (6) months from the date on which this 
Ordinance is approved by the Mayor; provided, that the 
Board, after a showing of good cause at a public hearing 
held before the Board before or after the expiration of 
such six-month period, may extend the period during which 
either the Bonds or such bond anticipation notes may be 
issued and sold for one additional term not exceeding six 
(6) months from the date on which the first six-month 
period expires. The Board, in its sole discretion and with- 
out action by the City Council of the City, shall determine 
the sufficiency, or lack thereof, of the reasons presented 
for any requested extension of such six-month period. If 
an extension is granted, notice of such extension and the 
reasons therefor must be sent to the City Council of the 
City. To the extent that neither the Bonds nor such bond 
anticipation notes are issued and sold within twelve (12) 
months from the date on which this Ordinance is approved 
by the Mayor, the authority provided in this Ordinance 
for the City to issue and sell the Bonds and such bond 
anticipation notes shall expire.

shall take effect from the date of its passage.

AN ORDINANCE concerning 

INDUSTRIAL DEVELOPMENT REVENUE 
BONDS— HERGET PROJECT 

FOR the purpose of extending- the period of time during 
which the City's Industrial Development Bonds (Herget 
Project) may be issued and sold. 

BY amending 

Section 12 of Ordinance No. 377 of the Mayor and City 
Council of Baltimore, passed by the City Council on 
June 23, 1981, and approved by the Mayor on June 30, 
1981 ! 

RECITALS 

Ordinance No. 377 of the Mayor and City Council of 
Baltimore (the ''City"), passed by the City Council on 
June 23, 1981, and approved by the Mayor on June 30, 
1981 (the "Ordinance"), authorizes the issuance by the 
City of not exceeding $3,000,000 aggregate principal 
amount of its Industrial Development Revenue Bonds 
(Herget Project) (the "Bonds") pursuant to the au- 
thority of either (i) Sections 266 A through 266-1, inclu- 
sive, of Article 41 of the Annotated Code of Maryland 
(1978 Replacement Volume and 1981 Cumulative Supple- 
ment), as amended (the "Act"), or (ii) Subsection (50) 
of Article II of the Charter of Baltimore City— 1964 
Revision (1981 Replacement Volume) ("Subsection 50"; 
the Act and Subsection 50 are referred to therein as 
the "Enabling Legislation"). The Ordinance provides 
that the proceeds from the sale of the Bonds will be 
loaned to Charles E. Herget, Jr., or such corporations 
or limited partnerships as are "related persons" of him 
(the "Borrower") in order to finance the acquisition, 
construction and improvement of a multi-story office 
building with parking facilities in the City as described 
therein (the "Facilities"). 

The City has been advised by the Borrower that in 
reliance upon the Ordinance and in anticipation of the 



362 ORDINANCES Ord. No. 674 

consummation of the financing authorized therein, the 
Borrower has expended substantial sums toward the ac- 
quisition, construction and improvement of the Facili- 
ties. The City is further advised, however, that certain 
real property issues in connection with the security for 
the Bonds which have now been resolved have made it 
impracticable for the Borrower to request that the City 
issue and sell the Bonds within the time limits con- 
templated by Section 12 of the Ordinance. 

Section 12 of the Ordinance provides that if the Bonds 
are not issued and sold within six months from the 
date on which the Ordinance was approved by the 
Mayor, the authorization provided in the Ordinance for 
the City to issue and sell the Bonds will expire, pro- 
vided that the Board of Finance may, after a showing 
of good cause at a public hearing held before the Board 
of Finance, extend such authorization for one addi- 
tional term not to exceed six months. The Mayor signed 
the Ordinance on June 30, 1981, and on December 21, 
1981, the Board of Finance extended such authorization 
for a period of six months. However, on June 30, 1982, 
such authorization will expire, unless action by the City 
extends such authorization. 

The Borrower has informed the City that, should the 
authorization to issue the Bonds be extended, the Bor- 
rower intends to proceed with the acquisition, construc- 
tion and improvement of the Facilities and with the 
financing of such acquisition, construction and improve- 
ment through the loan of the proceeds of the Bonds as 
authorized by the Ordinance. The City accordingly finds 
that, in order to accomplish the public purposes of the 
Enabling Legislation and the Ordinance, it is in the 
best interests of the citizens of the City to extend the 
period of time during which the Bonds may be issued 
and sold pursuant to the Ordinance as herein provided. 

Section 1. Be it ordained by the Mayor and City Council 
of Baltimore, That Section 12 of the Ordinance be amended 
to read as follows: 

Sec. 12. And he it further ordained, That if the Bonds 
are not issued and sold [within six months from the 
date on which this ordinance is approved by the Mayor 
or Acting Mayor of the City] on or before December 



ORDINANCES 363 

31, 1982, the authorization provided in this ordinance 
for the City to issue and sell the Bonds shall expire; 
provided however, that the Board of Finance of the 
City may, after a showing of good cause at a public 
hearing held before the Board of Finance, extend such 
authorization beyond December 31, 1982, for an addi- 
tional term not to exceed six months. The Board of 
Finance, in its sole discretion, shall determine the suffi- 
ciency, or lack thereof, of the reasons presented for any 
requested extension of this ordinance. If an extension 
is granted, notice of such extension and the reasons 
therefor shall be sent to the City Council. 

Sec. 2. And he it further ordained, That this ordinance 
shall take effect from the date of its passage.

Article 1 — Mayor, City Council and Municipal Agencies 
Neighborhood Crime BLOCK Watch Signs 

190. Legislative findings. 

The Mayor and City Council of Baltimore hereby find 
and declare that the threat, fear and intimidation caused 
by the criminal element is one of the most compelling 
problems facing society today. Crime isolates people in their 
own homes, causes CAUSING them to become suspicious of, 
and in some cases afraid of their neighbors. And yet, laiu 
enforcement officials tell us that neighborhoods with little 
inter-residential communication are more vulnerable to 
crime than are those cohere neighbors communicate and 
cooperate with each other on a regular basis. A new kind 
of anti-crime program starting to take hold in neighbor- 
hoods around the city seeks to promote such communica- 
tion and cooperation among neighbors as an effective 
counter measure to crime. This ordinance sets up a pro- 
gram to install signs in those neighborhoods where a 
neighborhood Block watch program is in effect, and it 
should be liberally interpreted so that it will achieve its 
anti-crime goals.

recreation and other purposes; Section il 2 of the Project 
will consist of facilities for commercial, retail and office 
use containing a minimum of 50,000 square feet and a 
maximum of 100,000 square feet of space, together with 
parking facilities for approximately 250 carsi 250 TO 
350 CARS. 

Section i 1 and Section H 2 will be financed separately, 
each being financed with one of the two series of Bonds 
authorized hereunder and with one of the two Loans 
authorized hereunder. The series of Bonds used to 
finance Section i 1 shall be designated the "Baltimore 
City, Maryland, Industrial Development Revenue Bond 
(Charles Center Place — Housing Facility Project) 1982 
Series" and the series of Bonds used to finance Section 
a 2 shall be designated the "Baltimore City, Maryland, 
Industrial Development Revenue Bond (Charles Center 
Place — Commercial Facility Project) 1982 Series." 

The Loan Agreement for each series will require the 
respective Borrowers (a) to use the proceeds of the 
Bonds solely to finance the acquisition, construction and 
improvement of each section of the Project, and (b) 
to make loan payments which will be sufficient to enable 
the City to pay the principal of and interest and pre- 
mium, if any, on the Bonds when and as the same shall 
become due and payable. 

As security for each series of the Bonds, the City will 
enter into a Trust Indenture with the original purchaser 
or purchasers, if more than one, of the Bonds (the "Pur- 
chaser"), and a trustee (which may be the Purchaser) 
(the "Trustee"), pursuant to which the City will assign 
to the Purchaser, (among other things) (a) all of the 



ORDINANCES 473 

City's right, title and interest in and to and remedies 
under the Loan Agreement, including (without limita- 
tion) any and all collateral referred to therein, excepting 
only the right of the City to indemnification by the Bor- 
rower and to payments to the City for expenses incurred 
by the City itself, (b) the revenues of the City from the 
Loan, (c) certain monies which are at any time or from 
time to time on deposit with the Trustee, (d) all right, 
title and interest in and to and remedies with respect to 
any and all other property of every description and na- 
ture from time to time by delivery or by writing of any 
kind conveyed, pledged, assigned or transferred, as and 
for additional security for the Bonds, by the City or by 
anyone on its behalf or with its written consent, to the 
Purchaser, and (e) all of the City's right, title and inter- 
est in and to and remedies under such other documents, 
including (without limitation) mortgages, deeds of trust, 
guaranties and security instruments as the Board of Fi- 
nance of the City (the "Board") shall deem necessary to 
effectuate the issuance, sale and delivery of each series 
of the Bonds and which the Board shall approve by a 
resolution (the "Resolution'') to be adopted by the Board 
prior to the issuance, sale and delivery of the Bonds. 

The Bonds will be sold to the Purchaser by private 
(negotiated) sale. 

NOW, THEREFORE, IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE 
ENABLING LAW: 

Section 1. Be it ordained by the Mayor and City Council 
of Baltimore, That acting pursuant to the Enabling Law, 
it is hereby found and determined as follows: 

(1) The issuance and sale of each series of the Bonds 
by the City pursuant to the Enabling Law in order to 
lend the proceeds thereof to the Borrowers for the sole 
and exclusive purpose of financing the acquisition, con- 
struction, and improvement by the Borrower of each sec- 
tion of the Project will facilitate and expedite the con- 
struction of the Project by the Borrowers. 

(2) The construction of each section of the Project 
by the Borrowers and the financing thereof as provided 



474 ORDINANCES Ord. No. 710 

in this Ordinance will promote the following purposes and 
objects: (a) relieving conditions of unemployment in the 
State of Maryland and in Baltimore City; (b) encouraging 
the increase of industry and a balanced economy in the 
State of Maryland and in Baltimore City; (c) promoting 
economic development; and (d) promoting the health, wel- 
fare and safety of the residents of the State of Maryland 
and Baltimore City. 

(3) The Enabling Law permits revenue bond financing 
to be accomplished in the form of a loan by the City to 
the Borrowers. The loan form of transaction avoids in- 
direct costs and burdens on the City by not requiring any 
direct involvement by the City in the acquisition, owner- 
ship or administration of the Project, while permitting 
ample controls to be imposed on the use of the proceeds 
of the Bonds to insure that the public purposes of the 
Mayor and City Council are fully accomplished. It is, 
therefore, in the best interests of the citizens of the City 
to finance the construction of Section 1 and Section 2 of 
the Project by loans to the Borrowers. This Ordinance 
contemplates and authorizes a transaction in the form of a 
loan of the proceeds of each series of the Bond by the 
City to the Borrowers, rather than a transaction in the 
form of a lease or sale of Section 1 and Section 2 of the 
Project. Accordingly, this Ordinance, together with the 
Resolution, the Trust Indenture and the Loan Agreement 
authorized hereby for each series of the Bonds, and the 
other documents referred to herein, contains, or shall con- 
tain, such provisions as the City deems appropriate to 
effect the financing of the construction by the Borrowers 
of the Project by the loan form of transaction. 

(4) Neither the Bonds nor the interest thereon shall 
ever constitute an indebtedness or general obligation of 
the City or a charge against, or pledge of the general 
credit or taxing powers of the City, within the meaning 
of . any constitutional or charter provision or statutory 
limitation, and neither shall ever constitute or give rise to 
any pecuniary liability of the City. The Bonds and the 
interest thereon shall be limited obligations of the City, 
repayable by the City solely from the revenues derived 
from Loan repayments (both principal and interest) made 
to the City by the Borrower on account of each Loan and 



ORDINANCES. 475 

from any other monies made available to the City for such 
purpose. The proceeds of the Bonds will be deposited with 
the Trustee to be held and disbursed by the Trustee as 
provided in the Trust Indenture to be approved by the 
Board in the Resolution. The payments to be made by 
the Borrowers pursuant to each Loan Agreement will be 
paid to the Trustee to be held and disbursed as provided 
in the Trust Indenture. No such monies will be com- 
mingled with the City's funds or will be subject to the 
absolute control of the City, but will be subject only to 
such limited supervision and checks as are deemed neces- 
sary or desirable by the City to insure that the proceeds 
of the Bonds are used to accompHsh the public purposes 
of the Enabling Law and this Ordinance. This loan form 
of transaction shall in no event constitute a capital project 
within the meaning of any charter or statutory provision. 

(5) The City will acquire no interest in Section 1 or 
Section 2 of the Project other than (a) any general in- 
terest in the Borrowers' property shared by all holders 
of the Borrowers' obligations which rank and are secured 
equally with the Borrowers' obligations pursuant to each 
Loan Agreement, (b) any lien and security interest created 
by each Loan Agreement, and (c) any interest created by 
any mortgage or deed of trust or other security instru- 
ment executed and delivered by the Borrowers, any guar- 
antor, or any other third party as security for each Loan 
as the Board may provide for and approve in the Reso- 
lution. The security for each Bond shall be solely and 
exclusively (a) the absolute, irrevocable and unconditional 
obligation of the Borrower to make the payments required 
by each Loan Agreement, (b) monies realized from the 
liquidation of any lien and security interest created by 
each Loan Agreement and of any other lien or security 
interest created with respect to any property as security 
for each Loan or each Bond as the Board may provide 
for and approve in the Resolution, and (c) monies real- 
ized from any guaranty of each Bond or of each Loan as 
the Board may provide for and approve in the Reso- 
lution. 

(6) None of the revenues derived by the City from 
the Loan Agreements shall be set aside as a depreciation 
account. Such a depreciation account would (a) be incon- 



476 ORDINANCES Ord. No. 710 

sistent with the transaction authorized hereby, and (b) 
place an unreasonable burden on the Borrowers so as to 
adversely affect the feasibility of the transaction. The 
Borrowers shall covenant and agree in each Loan Agree- 
ment to properly operate and maintain Section 1 and 
Section 2 of the Project during the time the Bonds are 
outstanding. Such covenant and agreement shall include a 
specific undertaking by the Borrowers to make all equip- 
ment replacements and repairs necessary to insure that 
the security for each Bond shall not be impaired. 

(7) The best interests of the City will be served by 
selling each Bond to the Purchaser by private (negotiated) 
sale, upon terms and conditions approved by the Board in 
the Resolution. 

Sec. 2. And be it further ordained, That the City is 
hereby authorized and empowered to issue, sell and deliver, 
at any time or from time to time, its Baltimore City, Mary- 
land, Industrial Development Revenue Bond (Charles 
Center Place — Housing Facility Project) 1982 Series and

nue Bond (Charles Center Place — Commercial Facility 
Project) 1982 Series in the aggregate principal amount not 
to exceed $25,000,000. $27,000,000. 

The proceeds of each Bond will be loaned to the Bor- 
rowers pursuant to the terms and provisions of each Loan 
Agreement, to be used by the Borrowers for the sole and 
exclusive purpose of financing the acquisition, construction 
and improvements of Section I 1 and Section H 2 of the 
Project. Each Bond and the interest thereon shall be a lim- 
ited obligation of the City, repayable by the City solely from 
the revenue derived from Loan repayments (both principal 
and interest) made to the City by the Borrowers pursuant 
to each Loan Agreement and from any other monies made 
available to the City for such purpose. The security for 
each Bond shall be solely and exclusively provided in Sec- 
tion 1 of this Ordinance.

the City is hereby authorized and directed to accept the 
Letter of Intent as supplemented by letter dated May 26,

The City has received a letter of intent dated May

ciates and Ben Geller & Associates, on behalf of One 
Calvert Joint Venture, a New Jersey limited partnership

bond anticipation notes issued pursuant to this Section of 
this Ordinance and the interest thereon from the proceeds 
of the Bonds in anticipation of the sale of which such

soon as, the reason for deferring the issuance of the Bonds

ever, is dependent upon matters not within the control 
of the City, including (v/ithout limitation) the existence

tutionality, or inapplicability shall not affect or impair 
any of the remaining provisions, sentences, clauses, sec- 
tions, or parts of this Ordinance or their application to 
other persons or circumstances. It is hereby declared to 
be the legislative intent that this Ordinance would have 
been passed if such illegal, invalid or unconstitutional pro-

cluded herein, and if the person or circumstances to which

Bonds or bond anticipation notes issued pursuant to Section 
9 of this Ordinance in anticipation of the issuance of the

of the City; provided, however, that the Board, after a 
showing of good cause at a public hearing held before the 
Board prior to or after the expiration of such six month 
period, may extend the period during which either the 
Bonds or such bond anticipation notes may be issued and 
sold for one additional term not to exceed six months 



ORDINANCES 493 

from the date on which the first six months period ex- 
pired. The Board, in its sole discretion, and without action 
by the City Council, shall determine the sufficiency, or lack 
thereof, of the reasons presented for any requested ex- 
tension of the six month period. If an extension is granted, 
notice of such extension and the reasons therefor must 
be sent to the City Council. To the extent that neither the 
Bonds nor such bond anticipation notes are issued and 
sold within twelve months from the date on which this 
Ordinance is approved by the Mayor of the City, the au- 
thority provided in this Ordinance for the City to issue 
and sell the Bonds and such bond anticipation notes shall 
expire. 

Sec. 12. And he it further ordained, That this Ordinance 
shall take effect from the date of its passage.
